These are not in any particular order.

Arty capture/recapture

Marching Fatigue

Mounted Cav with intrinsic, permanent skirmisher ability, but no costs (MPs or men) - so they can actually scout and stay out of trouble.

All very interesting ideas. One more to consider would be wounded leaders in campaigns possibly coming back as well as stragglers to units which I think happens in some games.
But to just vote three on whats listed, I think I'm with Sean Turner mostly....
1) Arty Ammo Pool - 1 round per tube, and maybe adding wagons as Gen Amos gave the good example of the reb ammo at Pickett's Charge.

2) Marching fatigue

3) Arty capture/recapture

pbem encryption is nice too, but we've lived without it this long, we can wait till some of these other issues get looked at.

Is that 3 altogether, or 3 each for artillery, infantry & cavalry?[:D]

For me, it's almost certainly the following:

1./ <b>Arty capture/recapture</b> - this would solve a number of related gaming issues, so is far and away my top choice. (I'd be glad to discuss this topic in more detail by email if you like)
2./ <b>Cav capable of detaching sub-units </b>(like Nappy cavalry) <b>and with these sub-units having intrinsic, permanent skirmisher ability when mounted.</b> (ie. they can "see" ahead like infantry skirmishers and will suffer reduced casualties since in open order and able to use their mobility to get out of trouble quickly)
3./ <b>Arty ammo wagons</b>

The other features you list would all be useful, but I doubt they'd have the same far-reaching impact on gameplay.

1) Undisrupted units through which routed units pass get morale check rather than automatically disrupted.
2) Improved Arty defensive fire (either higher fire strength and/or better targeting) OR lower arty capture points.
3) Dynamic LOS (includes Abaits.)

I.E. No stumbling onto a unit that should be in plain view once LOS is clear and open. Maybe just a ? when first observed by a moving unit in the clear like skirmishers can do, though they can also do so when static in cover.

I LOVE this idea. Players trying to use cavalry historically as roadblocks are punished with high losses (and the consequent high vp losses for cav casualties).

My Priorities

1.) Higher defensive fire for Artillery
2.) Batteries that have the same kind of guns unitary, not sections
3.) Lower point values for Artillery and Cavalry
